My Sweet Pea shawl is coming along quite nicely, once you get the rhythm down it works up pretty quickly. And it is very quickly gobbling up the four skeins I had originally bought. The funny thing about it is that the widest third of the shawl will use about half of the yarn needed for it. I know, because I counted the shells and did the figures. I'm not particularly good with math, but I do like to count things... And don't even get me started on Fibonacci; I can feel my heart skipping already!
When we were in Denmark in August (so too long ago!) I saw a beautiful scallop-edged quilt in a shop and I'd been wondering how to make something like that. The simple solution is to be found in Bend-the-Rules Sewing, by Amy Karol (like you didn't know). So this afternoon I thought I'd have a go - using the stripy top I made a little while ago. It's not completely done yet, there's still the quilting bit to go. And I might even do that by hand! The scallops are far from even size - this is what happens when you do things freehand. But that just adds charm. ;-)
